The Institute of the South for Hospitality and Culinary Arts is dedicated to the meaningful learning and excellent teaching that enables our students to achieve their full potential in the hospitality, dietetics and food service industries. Our long term goal is to empower students to become leading partners in a dynamic prosperous community.

The Program

A cluster consisting of the food and beverage preparation, kitchen and dining room helper and baker and cook’s assistant instruction. The program is designed to provide multiple completion points and prepares you for employment as a food and beverage preparer, kitchen and dining room helper or baker and cook’s assistant. The first completion point is food and beverage preparer, followed by a kitchen and dining room helper and, finally, the baker and cook’s assistant component.

You learn sanitation and safety, proper receiving and storage of goods, care of facilities and equipment as well as responsibilities and skills in the dining room service area. You will be provided instruction in the preparation of salads and dressings, soups and sauces, starches and entrees, baked goods and desserts. You may continue your education for an A.S. degree in Restaurant Management or Culinary Management.

You should be advised by a counselor or program chairperson prior to enrolling.
